Park Rules and Regulations

Information provided courtesy of Parks Canada

National parks protect and preserve areas of natural beauty and significance; but only if we manage our impact. This takes special legislation passed by the Canadian parliament, known as the National Parks Act. In part, the Act states that national parks have been established:

“To protect for all time those places which are significant examples of Canada’s natural and cultural heritage, and also to encourage public understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of this heritage in ways which leave it unimpaired for future generations.”

The Act covers everything you can think of and more. Here are a few examples:

  • It is unlawful to collect or remove any natural objects or historical artifacts (this includes berries, wildflowers, mushrooms, antlers, wood, interesting rocks along the river, etc.).
  • It is unlawful to feed, entice or harass wildlife (this includes feeding them ‘natural’ food, it also includes what may look like tame wildlife such as birds or squirrels).
  • Pets must be leashed at all times. For their protection, never leave your pet unattended. Bears, coyotes, and even elk and deer may present a danger to your pet.
  • All food (even food in coolers) must be stored inside vehicle trunks or in tear-proof containers.
  • You may camp only in designated areas.
